Psycho Las Vegas judge booted from the bench after handcuffing public defender

The planet’s stupidest judge, Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Conrad Hafen will never again serve as a judge in Nevada, according to the state’s Commission on Judicial Discipline.

Hafen also agreed to public censure and admitted that he violated judicial canons, according to the resolution posted online Monday as the result of four complaints filed with the commission.

Hafen drew criticism from groups of defense attorneys after ordering a lawyer handcuffed in court in May.

The commission noted that another judge later overturned a contempt finding against Zohra Bakhtary, the deputy public defender who was handcuffed on Hafen’s orders.
